This project area was identified for improvements through annual pavement ratings and resident input.  The pavement in the project area has deteriorated to the point at which pothole filling and patching are no longer effective.
During the project, the existing pavement will be crushed and blended with the underlying aggregate to form new base material to support the road.  This is commonly referred to as pavement reclamation.  After the road has been reclaimed, excess material will be removed and the base will be compacted.  Two new layers of bituminous pavement will then be installed over this base.  Other improvements occurring during the project include the replacement of severely deteriorated concrete curb and gutter and the adjustment of manholes to the final pavement elevation.
The project will be completed under thru-traffic conditions for local traffic.  Area residents will have access to their property to most times during the project.  If you have any special access needs (handicapped, an event planned at your residence, etc.) please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate.
